I envisioned eating croissants beside the Eiffel Tower. Instead, I found skaapkop and plantains on the streets of a proxy motherland.

FINANCE and ECONOMICS

If the internet taught us anything, it's that you don't need a university degree, a stable income or even a 'real job' to pursue what drives you. I'm a college student and I travel the world while exploring our changing relationship with money. Now more than ever, we need to transform our understanding of economics in order to align human values with how we measure monetary value. From cryptocurrencies in Silicon Valley to community currencies in Kenya, plus everything in between – you'll find me redesigning finance or musing on the lessons I learn along the way.
